The Passing of the Elves by Gwillieth The Passing of the Elves by Gwillieth
"The Passing of The Elves"

Acrylic on Canvas
40 x 50 cm

This scene is something I wanted to paint a long time ago.
Painting is traditional work, fan art, and it is a painted scene from Peter Jackson`s adaptation of the "Lord of The Rings" , breath-taking three-volume book originally written by my favourite writer,amazing John Ronald Reuel Tolkien.

This was deleted scene from the extended edition of the first film,"The Fellowship of the ring" and on this link you can see that part of the movie :

Inscriptions painted on the top and at the bottom of this painting are elvish runes known as Tengwar , script created by J. R. R. Tolkien for his books,and they represent one part of beautiful Elvish hymn to Varda in J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.


text and Translation of the tengwar inscriptions on the painting :

"A Elbereth Gilthoniel
O Elbereth Starkindler,
silivren penna míriel
white-glittering, slanting down sparkling like a jewel,
o menel aglar elenath!
the glory of the starry host!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
Having gazed far away
o galadhremmin ennorath,
from the tree-woven lands of Middle-earth,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
to thee, Everwhite, I will sing,
nef aear, sí nef aearon!
on this side of the Sea, here on this side of the Ocean!"

This is exquisite, and I see that you're literate too!

I liked Frodo before liking Frodo was "cool."

It`s because of artists like you that Tolkiens Legacy hasn`t faded into obscurity.
